2004 Ford Taurus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My wife uses the car daily for short drive to and from work. We use the car at least once a month for trips across the state. It's comfortable and practical for both. Car is good in the snow (Erie, PA). We bought our first Taurus in '99 and were happy enough to buy this Taurus in '04. We like the newer styling also.


Favorite Features

6 disc CD player, cruise control.

2004 Ford Taurus Sedan SES 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I am a member of a Taurus Family - we've all had one and I love it. This one is my second - traded a 2000 on it which was still running great at 70k miles. This is my favorite yet though. I have had no problems with it and I drive almost 60 miles a day. Taurus are great for safety - a family member of mine after getting hit by two trucks was still able to walk away though the car didn't. I would recommend this car to anyone. I must recommend the 24 valve engine and sports package because it is a great option for anyone wanting a little more power. I did a few things to the 04: Le Bra, tint windows. mud flaps, and am thinking about chip. Wish it had sunroof.


Favorite Features

Sports Package, CD player.


Suggested Improvements

I can't wish for anything more except I miss the SHO!

2004 Ford Taurus Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought this car brand new about a year ago. Paid $12,000 for it. No major problems with it. Front wheel makes squeaky noises, and the dealer cannot fix the problem. It is no big deal, I can barely hear it with the windows down. The car is really smooth to drive. The suspension is extremely soft, but it also handles like a boat. The previous car that I owned was a '99 Chevy Lumina; the Ford handles better overall. The engine is slow and sluggish. The transmission is even worse; it never knows what gear it is supposed to be in. However if you drive normally you won't have any problems, just don't expect much from the V6. Overall it has been a good experience. Smooth, soft, fast on the highway.


Favorite Features

Smooth ride, huge on the inside, big trunk. Low profile.


Suggested Improvements

The regular V6 is SLOW, the transmission is horrible. I would recommend going with the DOHC engine if you expect any kind of perfomance from your vehicle.

Good sedan, good overall car, short on looks but spoiler and rims help. Lots of room and comfort for the price. I drive 26 miles to work; some in city and some highway and my mpg is 20.


Favorite Features

Duratec engine.


Suggested Improvements

Need rear discs.
